UPDATE: Monday, Oct. 13, 6 p.m.: There has been a possible sighting of Sally Estabrook in the Scripps Ranch area. As more information becomes available it will be posted.

After the first full weekend of searching for Sally Estabrook failed to find the 76-year-old Fallbrook resident with Alzheimer’s disease, the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department suspended major search efforts.

“We suspended the large-scale aspect,” said Sheriff’s Department search and rescue coordinator Don Parker.

Parker made his comment the morning of Monday, October 13, which was the tenth day of the search. Although the temporary facilities around the Julian campground where Estabrook disappeared were broken down on the night of October 12, efforts to find Estabrook will still operate out of the Sheriff’s Department headquarters in San Diego.

“The major search effort has been suspended,” Parker said. “We never stop searching.”

Sally Estabrook has been missing since approximately 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 4. Estabrook and her husband, Bob, were part of a camping club which had traveled to the Pinezanita RV Park and Campgrounds in Julian. The group arrived on Friday, October 3. On October 4 Bob Estabrook took a shower. When he returned his wife was missing. After her husband last saw Estabrook another camper saw her standing outside but didn’t realize that she had Alzheimer’s.

Sally Estabrook is 5’4″ and has blue eyes and shoulder-length blonde hair. Her unknown status may have affected her eating, but she weighed 145 pounds the last time she was on a scale. When she was discovered missing she was wearing a teal top, white capri pants, and white tennis shoes.

The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department initially deployed search and rescue assets including the ASTREA (Aerial Support To Regional Enforcement Agencies) helicopter. More than 300 volunteers (counting separately the same person on different days if volunteers searched on multiple days) looked for Estabrook during the first seven days. “Red Cross has been invaluable in helping us out and bringing up food and refreshments,” Parker said.

On October 10 Estabrook’s family members and the Sheriff’s Department convened a press conference requesting that the general public help identify Estabrook. Estabrook’s daughter Pam Mustaine, son-in-law Dave Mustaine, and Parker spoke at the press conference at the Sheriff’s Department headquarters.

“This is a human being who’s gone missing and we do want the community to help,” Parker said. “This is an Alzheimer’s walkaway search that’s all too often replicated over and over again.”

Estabrook and her husband have lived in Fallbrook for approximately ten years. Pam Mustaine was raised in Upland, which for purposes of her mother’s hiking and camping pleasures is near Mount Baldy. “They’ve just always camped,” she said. “Loved life and loved the outdoors and loved camping.”

Dave Mustaine noted that his mother-in-law was in good physical health. “She did hike a lot. She did walk a lot,” he said.

“Her body was in great health,” Pam Mustaine said. “Her mind went.”

Pam Mustaine last saw her mother about two weeks prior to Estabrook’s disappearance. “She recognized me,” Mustaine said. “She couldn’t talk.”

Although Estabrook often isn’t able to talk, she has been known to respond to “Sally” or “Nana”.

“She’s just really humble, sweet,” Pam Mustaine said.

The U.S. Forest Service, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, the Orange County Sheriff’s Department, and the state Office of Emergency Services joined the search. “We’re so grateful,” Dave Mustaine said.

The search units included the Sheriff’s Department mounted patrol and the volunteer Ramona Sheriff’s Mounted Patrol.

The Pinezanita RV Park and Campgrounds is in the 4400 block of Highway 79 in Julian. The campground itself is 26 acres. “At this point that continues to be an area of focus,” Parker said.

Much of the search was in the immediate area. “It’s very, very thick brush. The terrain is mountainous,” Parker said. Mountain lions and coyotes have been known to frequent the area. “That’s a concern,” Parker said, noting that the predators create hazards both for Estabrook and for night searchers. “We’re searching generally from daylight to just a few hours past dusk.”

Mountain lions are ambush predators, and a mountain lion den is believed to exist approximately a mile from the site.

The searchers looked on foot in areas of high probability covering a search area approximately six miles by ten miles.

“We’re looking outside of the camp right now,” Dave Mustaine said.

Parker noted that ponds in the area were also checked.

Approximately 85 volunteers joined the search on Saturday, October 11, and approximately 100 volunteers helped search for Estabrook on Sunday, October 12. “We did have a really good showing from out of county,” Parker said. “We searched a lot of areas.”

The search during the weekend of October 11-12 included more than ten miles on the Sunrise Highway. “We came up with nothing,” Parker said.

“She couldn’t stay put,” Pam Mustaine said. “She just has to stay moving.”

The Sheriff’s Department has received between half a dozen and a dozen calls on potential information about Estabrook.

One caller reported potentially seeing Estabrook approximately one mile south of the campground on Sunday, October 5, but did not call until the morning of Tuesday, October 7.

“We need to continue to ask the public to keep their eyes open for Sally,” Parker said. “A whole lot of eyes are better than just a few.”

Dave Mustaine urged anyone who thinks they see Estabrook to call 911. He noted that someone may have given her a ride and that calling the San Diego Crime Stoppers (888) 580-8477 number anonymously would eliminate any issues about giving the missing person the ride. “We don’t care. We just want her back,” he said.

“If she got a ride with somebody then there’s a good chance she’s in a homeless shelter,” Parker said.

Estabrook has had noticeable signs of Alzheimer’s disease for the past three to four years. “She wouldn’t know how to put two words together and she may look like a homeless person at this point,” Pam Mustaine said.

Pam Mustaine added that most members of the public wouldn’t be able to discern a wandering Alzheimer’s victim from a homeless person. “A lot of people just think they’re homeless and don’t do anything about it,” she said.

The night temperatures in Julian have been in the low 60s, which minimizes the risk of hypothermia if Estabrook is still in that area, although the warm weather also means that most California cold-weather homeless shelters are closed until

mid-fall. “We were going to check shelters, but a lot of them aren’t even open yet,” Pam Mustaine said.

Dave Mustaine noted that his mother-in-law might have found shelter in a shed or a garage. “We’re asking that you look there,” he said.

Dave Mustaine brought up the possibility that Estabrook might also have been taken to a hospital, although the Sheriff’s Department has been checking with hospitals for patients who match Estabrook’s description.

“We need your help,” Dave Mustaine said.

“It’s still a search and rescue, and even if it’s not a search and rescue it’s a search and recovery,” Parker said.

Parker explained that in the event that the result is the recovery of Estabrook’s body it can be returned to her family.

“Not knowing is worse,” he said.

“It is a search and rescue. We always hope for the best,” Parker said. “There’s still hope even though it is slim.”

The fact that searchers did not find Estabrook’s body increases the chance that she is still alive, although the lack of any clues in the area near the campgrounds also increases the chance that she is no longer in that area. “We haven’t found her and we haven’t found any clues of her there,” Parker said.

“We’re just trying to stay positive,” Dave Mustaine said.

“With good motives a lot can be done,” Pam Mustaine said.

After nearly a week of searching for Sally Estabrook failed to find the 76-year-old Fallbrook resident with Alzheimer’s disease, her family members and the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department convened an October 10 press conference requesting that the general public help identify Estabrook.

Parker noted that ponds in the area have also been checked.

“The radius is probably not going to expand past five miles,” Parker said, adding that a five-mile radius is a ten-mile diameter.

“She couldn’t stay put,” Pam Mustaine said. “She just has to stay moving.”

Dave Mustaine noted that his mother-in-law was in good physical health. “She did hike a lot. She did walk a lot,” he said.

Fallbrook’s Mustaine family encourages volunteers to keep looking for Alzheimer’s patient Sally Estabrook in Julian area

(UPDATE Sat., October 11)

Today and tomorrow between 100 and 150 search and rescue workers and volunteers are lending their help to continue the now 7-day-old search for 75-year-old Fallbrook resident Sally Estabrook, an Alzheimer’s patient who went missing October 4 from Pinezanita RV Park & Campground in Julian.

Yesterday, the Mustaine family of Fallbrook held a media briefing at Sheriff’s headquarters in San Diego encouraging volunteers to keep searching and giving an overview of what they might expect in Estabrook’s appearance.

Dave Mustaine, well-known rocker and frontman of the band, Megadeth, asked hospital, shelter and assisted living home employees to make sure Estabrook hadn’t ended up at one of the facilities. He also asked Julian-area residents to keep an eye out for his mother-in-law. “We’re just asking everybody that may have been up there to take a look in your sheds, in your garages, in the thick brush around your house,” Mustaine said. “A lot of times people that wander who have Alzheimer’s are found very close to their homes. They just take shelter underneath bushes.”

Mustaine’s wife and the daughter of Sally Estabrook warned searchers that her mother might appear to have the appearance of a homeless person since being on her own for several days and she asked people to be aware of areas like offramps and fast food places where homeless people might be seen.

(Previous update, Fri., October 10)

Representatives of the family included Estabrook’s rocker son-in-law Dave Mustaine, frontman for the band, Megadeth.

Information shared by the family included that Estabrook’s current appearance could be similar to a homeless person and more.

The number of search volunteers is expected to grow to between 100 and 150 on Saturday and Sunday.

Search for 75-year-old Fallbrook woman goes into day five in Julian area

JULIAN – The search for 75-year-old Fallbrook resident Sally Estabrook is going into its fifth day today.

Estabrook went missing Saturday, October 4, from the Pinezanita RV Park and Campgrounds in the 4400 block of SR‐79 in Julian. When Estabrook’s husband finished taking a shower, he noticed she was gone. Estabrook suffers from Alzheimer’s disease.  

Yesterday, Tues., October 7, 50 volunteers searched a six‐mile area outside of the campgrounds. The volunteers are from the Sheriff’s Search and Rescue Unit, as well as Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties.  Six canines worked to track any possible scent of Sally. Two mounted units from Ramona and Julian helped with the search. Sheriff’s ASTREA pilots are also using night vision goggles during the evening search.

Volunteers also searched SR‐79 near mile marker 15 following a report of a possible sighting over the weekend. While footprints were found in the area, it’s not clear at this time if they belong to Sally.

The Sheriff’s Department is calling on anyone with surveillance video (home or business) from the day Estabrook disappeared from the campground to come forward. The video could provide clues in the search for her.

Estabrook stands 5’4″ tall, weighs 145 pounds and has shoulder-length blonde hair. She may be wearing a teal top and white capris pants.

Because Estabrook suffers from Alzheimer’s, she isn’t very communicative, but might respond to her name.

If you have seen Sally Estabrook or have surveillance video from the day she went missing, call 9‐1‐1 or the Sheriff’s Department at (858) 565‐5200.

If you have a loved one who suffers from Alzheimer’s or any other form of dementia, you’re encouraged to register for the Sheriff’s “Take Me Home” program. It is a free and confidential database only available to local law enforcement agencies. It contains photos, crucial medical information and special care instructions for people with Alzheimer’s and likely to wander off or children with special needs. It helps to know during a search if the patient is a non‐verbal, doesn’t want to be touched or would only respond to a certain name.

    Cheri and I were with Bob and Sally last September camping and Sally went for a rather long walk. She looked to be in good condition, we walked about a mile.

    We all pray that God will protector her, that Jesus will comfort Bob and the Holy Spirit will guide Sargent Don Parker as he directs the search. Keep the searchers safe.

    God please bring Sally home…

    I live in Fallbrook and when something hits this close to home it is so surreal. I will continue to keep an eye out for Sally. I worked at a Geriatric Health Care facility for many years and understand the depth of this illness. It is so sad and horrific when someone like this wonders.

    Let us remember that although she is lost from our sight, she is not lost from The Lord’s sight. The Lord is aware of every detail of this situation. Emmanuel, God is with us and He is with Sally too at this very moment; As Jesus went in search of the one lost sheep and carried that lost lamb in His arms back into the fold, so I want to envision this happening for Sally; I love her dearly; I am praying for her health and protection; I’m also praying for those leading the search parties that they will call upon the Name of The Lord for His wisdom so they can give clear guidance and direction to those searching for Sally. May Bob find comfort knowing God is in control; may He be able to take nourishment and get the rest He needs as he waits upon The Lord for the outcome of this situation. Let us remember to claim God’s promises, thank Him for His faithfulness and praise Him for His answers when they are given.
